When I googled, I found this article from one year ago, which states that actually Staten Island has the lowest growth of all the boroughs. So I wonder where you got your info.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/22/n...opulation.html

From 2010 to 2017, New York City led the rest of the state in population growth, with the Bronx emerging as the fastest-growing county in the state. The Bronx surged 6.21 percent, with 86,052 new residents.


But Brooklyn, with a population of 2,648,771, took in more people — 144,071 — to achieve the highest growth of any county in the state by absolute numbers. Its 5.75 percent jump from 2010 to 2017 was second as a percentage gain.

The population in Queens climbed 127,860, or 5.73 percent, to 2,358,582, making it second among counties in the state in terms of growth by numbers and third in percentage gains. Manhattan was fourth in the number of newcomers, with 78,854, a 4.97 percent expansion that ranked fifth in percentage terms (behind Rockland County, which grew 5.51 percent with an increase of 17,181 people).

Staten Island added a more modest 10,728 people, a 2.29 percent gain to 479,458.

That’s precisely it, and Queens is actually losing population... Becoming too expensive...

Not really. What is happening is they are knocking down larger houses on plots of land and in putting in several town homes. The island's infrastructure can't handle all of the construction out there and it shows because of the horrible traffic. The island was developed as a place that was to be low density and the roads still reflect this. Narrow streets and narrow sidewalks...

Traffic is outrageous here... it’s miserable... I never remember taking 30-45 min to drive to halfway across the island when I was a kid... now it takes me almost an hour to get to my barbershop on weeknights 😩😩

Yeah well... When people have two or three cars per household and there are little to no infrastructure improvements, this is what you get.
